Former Portfolio editor to write column for Newsweek


Joanne Lipman, who was the editor of the now-defunct Conde Nast Portfolio, will write a regular column for Newsweek called the “C-Suite,” reports John Koblin of Women’s Wear Daily.

Koblin writes, “‘She will do recurring columns on c-suite topics and ceo interviews,’ said a Newsweek spokesman.

“It’s no surprise that Lipman would resurface in Tina Brown‘s new magazine. Back when media watchers were hurling spitballs at Lipman’s Portfolio, Brown was one of her most vocal supporters.

“In 2009, Brown described Portfolio as a ‘self-assured, smart competitor in the suit segment of boring business books’ and called Lipman a ‘star’ and an ‘accomplished business journalist with a lot of fans.’ Edward Felsenthal, executive editor at Newsweek, worked with Lipman for years at The Wall Street Journal and the two have been regular lunch partners since then.”
